Player Outlook
The Bengals selected Burton in the third round of the NFL Draft from Alabama, and he could play a prominent role right away. He's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all redraft leagues, and he's a second-round pick in rookie-only drafts for Dynasty leagues. Burton should be the No. 3 receiver in his rookie campaign behind Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, but if Higgins misses any time in training camp due to his contract situation then Burton's stock will rise. With Tyler Boyd gone, Burton has the chance for 98 vacated targets, which is ideal. At Alabama, Burton had 39 catches for 798 yards and eight touchdowns, and he could be among the better rookie receivers this season. As long as Joe Burrow is healthy, Burton has sleeper appeal in 2024.

  • Bengals' Jermaine Burton: Cincinnati snatches in third round

    The Bengals selected Burton in the third round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 80th overall. Burton (6-foot, 196 pounds) is a former blue-chip recruit who transferred from Georgia to Alabama, displaying standout talent at both schools but also picking up his share of critics along the way. He developed a reputation for dubious judgement on the field and in the locker room both, and not as many former coaches went to bat for him as they normally would with a player of his abilities. With that said, Burton's fit at the pro level doesn't require much speculation. If he has his head in the game he has the talent to emerge as at least an average starter at some point, and for the Bengals he should be an immediate boost to the deep passing game. With 4.45-second 40-yard dash and impressive hands/tracking ability, Burton could hurt defenses that leave him in single coverage against slower corners.
